Recognizing Auto Injuries

Symptoms of car accident injuries can often be cumulative rather than immediate, making it hard to gauge whether you have sustained an injury right away. 

Even if you are not experiencing pain, you want to look out for other symptoms like: 

  • Numbness or tingling sensation in the limbs
  • Unexplained headaches
  • Fatigue
  • Muscle stiffness or muscle spasms
  • Restlessness or problems sleeping
  • Inability to focus

If you’ve been in a crash, it’s important to consult a healthcare provider right away to prevent your symptoms from worsening. A doctor of chiropractic can help you recover from auto injuries like whiplash, headache, and neck pain.

Why You Shouldn’t Wait to Get Auto Injury Treatment

Immediately after an auto collision, it’s common for people to wait to get treatment. Most people think, “I’ll just wait to see how I feel next week.” This approach can be a mistake.

A number of scientific studies show that when a patient gets early treatment soon after a crash, they have better outcomes than those patients who wait.

During a crash, the tissues of your neck can be stretched or torn. You may not feel pain right away but as the tissues become swollen and inflamed, patients often wake up the next day with a sore, stiff neck.

Pain and stiffness are signs of trauma to the ligaments and muscles of your neck. The body’s response to injury is to restrict movement and to heal the injury by sending white blood cells to the area. Your body will then begin repairing the injured area by laying down scar tissue.

The problem with scar tissue is that each joint in your neck has a fairly limited range of motion. Scar tissue reduces that motion even more, and if you don’t receive proper treatment, that can result in permanent limited mobility, chronic pain, and even spinal degeneration of the joints.

Getting early treatment will break up this pattern by increasing movement in the injured area and by preventing the development of scar tissue.
